No destination is 100 percent vegan and while we incorporate vegan businesses in the tours, we also support vegan-friendly restaurants and businesses that recognize the importance of plant-based food. It is important to us to show support for these businesses with the hope that they see value in offering plant-based food and continue to do so. All food on Vegans, Baby tours is vegan, but not all restaurants or establishments on the tour are entirely vegan.
